Anyhou. Last year I was reading the weblogs on the internet, as I am prone to do, and I spotted something crafty that I immediately knew I had to make. As you know, I'm not so crafty, but this item really floats my boat.
|Felted wool wreath from Pickles|
So, I ordered up a 14-inch straw wreath, and 200 felted wool balls and I made this:
Hm. Mine looks different. Hard to place my finger on it... Oh, shiz man, I do not have enough balls. But the balls I've got look pretty good, right?
So, I tried to buy more balls from the purveyor of fine balls, but they are out of appropriate balls. Crap. They haven't told me when they will have more balls. My wreath may not be finished before Christmas! I may have a Lent wreath instead of Christmas wreath. How tacky.
Further to my wreathing/balls woes, I burned the shizzles out of my finger tip on the glue gun. Here's a bad photo of what's currently happening on my paw:
Well, I tried. Some day my balls will come and I WILL finish it.
